Safe Place for Animals (SPA) is a 501c3 nonprofit, no-kill, animal rescue shelter/pet adoption center, with a low-cost Veterinary Well Care Clinic and Grooming Salon.

SPA is dedicated to helping pets in our community in need. We take in, care for, provide veterinary services and medical care, spay/neuter and find loving, responsible homes for homeless, abandoned and unwanted pets. Our shelter is open 365 days a year! We rely on donations from compassionate and caring citizens in the community who want to help make a difference in the lives of animals in need. We do not receive any government financial assistance.

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

    Margaret Mead
  • “You can do something big, or you can do something small. Because what ever you do... it’s better than nothing at all.”

    Rescue. Foster. Adopt. Spay/Neuter. Volunteer. Donate. Advocate. 
  • “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

    Elizabeth Andrew
  • “Saving one dog will not change the world. But surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”

  • Don’t buy and don’t breed. Adopt a homeless pet in need!

  • Fostering isn’t a lifetime commitment. It’s a commitment to save a life.
